Kanye West has reportedly reached an out of court settlement with the 18 year-old he was accused of attacking at a chiropractor's office in Los Angeles earlier this month, paying him $250,000.
The 36 year-old was accused of punching the teenager after he hurled racial abuse at West's fiance, Kim Kardashian. Sources have reportedly told TMZ that while it had yet to be decided if there was a case to be heard by the District Attorney, West has agreed a civil settlement with the teen. The teen will reportedly not now go forward with a criminal prosecution.
TMZ report that the teen initially asked for a six figure settlement, so $250K is viewed as a good deal for the star.

While neither Kim or Kanye have spoken out about the drama, momager-in-law Kris Jenner did appear to confirm the incident during an interview on Australia's 2DayFM Breakfast Show.
Presenters asked if it was true West had "assaulted an 18-year-old man by punching him in the face," to which Kris replied: "Well, that sounds like, a lot like what I heard."
She added: "I do know that how it started was this person got really a lot of racial, hateful, horrible things that he was saying. Apparently many times. Very hateful person. And I think that’s where it started. I’m not quite sure how it ended."

Though revealing she hadn't actually spoke to her daughter about it she went on: "I got wind of this last night because I'd been out of town, and I've literally been doing some press all day today and have not been home so I haven’t talked to anybody to give you a better update.
"But I think that what happened was that somebody got really out of line."
